    ESP8266 Xploit Host v2.0b By @c0d3m4st4 View File Download ESP8266XploitHost v1.0 ESP8266XploitHost 2.0b2 Donations If you enjoy my work consider donating for future updates or testing new boards. You can do it here: https://ko-fi.com/E1E0BN94 Thanks in advance What's new -20/04/2018- ESP8266XploitHost 2.0b2 Fixed 4.05 scroll issue with R1/L1 and reorganized menu. Replaced Enable VR with HEN+VR in 4.05 Fixed stupid mistake with 4.05 xvortex payloads. Updated HEN+VR to v2 in 4.55 -15/04/2018- ESP8266XploitHost 2.0b1 Added Holy Grail payload after many requests. Lots of not enough memory errors, but some say they don't get the issues they have with xvortex HEN. Moved all HEN payloads launchers to the first position of the list. On PS4, you can use R1 and L1 to scroll thru the menu, no need to use the analog stick to navigate to the arrows (this works only in the “user guide”, as the PS4 browser already uses every button, so it will go crazy. Updated list of “tricks” thay may help to avoid the issues with xvortex in the “Known issues” section in the manual. Added PS3 exploits from www.ps3xploit.com . Please refer to the site to check if your console is supported. Tested all the HAN process on a 4.82 OFW slim console, and works great. I didn't play with the flash dumping or writing options (be careful with the flash writing options as NOT every console is supported). Refer to the site for the needed files to place on the USB drive for installation. Delete cache an cookies in the PS3 browser for better results. Connect to the ESP8266XploitHost access point, then open the browser. If you didn't touch default settings, you will be redirected to the host automatically, if you changed the start page, you may need to enter host IP address ( to access the menu. Added Nintendo Switch exploit to install HB launcher. Please refer to https://switchbrew.github.io/nx-hbl/ for isntallation guide. Works on 3.0 only, so it is mostly untested... i'm on 2.0 and everything works as expected. I got until the “unable to pwn sdb” error, which is normal as it only works on 3.0, so it should work well, please report any error. To launch the installer just connect to the ESP8266XploitHost access point, and you will get redirected to the installer. Also added automatic redirection to the correct exploit pages. No more firmware selector on PS4, if you conenct with a PS3, the PS3 menu will be shown, if you connect with a Swith, you will get erdirected to the HB launcher installer, and finally if you conenct with a PC or smartphone, you will get redirected to the tools menu (tools menu is for PS4 only, credits and info, you can still upload any file tho). -11/04/2018- ESP8266XploitHost 1.0 (no more beta status): optimized template (loads in ~2 secs), updated stooged's payloads, scrolling exploits menu (lots of space now to add more stuff), added a new option to set a custom exploit to be launched from the “Custom” menu placeholder, updated manuals. -08/04/2018- First public release (ESP8266XploitHost 1.0b4) Notes I upgraded to 4.55, so support for 4.05 is over (same on PiXploitHost). I'll keep it in the menu for now, but there won't be any updates to it (i doubt there will be any payload updates for 4.05 too). You can contact me on twitter @c0d3m4st4 for bug reports. I won't bother replying to questions like, what is the password for the AP and stuff like that. Read the manuals! Support English support You can contact me at twitter (@c0d3m4st4) or playstationhax.xyz. Won't reply to questions already answered in the manual. https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4550-released-esp8266-xploit-host-v10-by-c0d3m4st4-ps4/ Soporte en Español Puedes contactar conmigo en elotrolado.net. No respondo a cosas que estén en el manual. https://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_esp8266xploithost-servidor-de-exploits-en-un-esp8266-nodemcu-y-similares_2280455 Flashing the image Use NodeMCU PyFlasher-3.0 to flash the included bin image. You can download PyFlasher here: https://github.com/marcelstoer/nodemcu-pyflasher/releases For nodeMCU use these settings: - Serial port: whatever it's assigned to the board - Firmware: "c0d3m4st4_ESP8266XploitHost_v1_final.bin" file - Baud rate: 115200 - Flash mode: DIO (for clone NodeMCU. Use Google if you have a different board) - Erase flash: yes, wipe it as we are flashing a full 4M image! Features SoftAP with DHCP ("ESP8266XploitHost", password "ps4xploit"). Web server ( DNS server FTP server on port 21 (user "ps4xploit", password "ps4xploit") Autoupdate (upload new binary, restart ESP8266 and it will update and delete the update file automatically. SPIFFS partition is untouched) Direct boot (choose any HEN payload to boot directly after opening the guide or browsing to without needing to choose anything in the menu) Options menu for PC/smartphone where you can upload files, set direct boot option, format SPIFFS partition, send binary payloads, set your own exploit to be launched from main menu, see device info, and some more stuff that will probably come in the future). You can find it at (access from your phone after connecting to the ESP8266XploitHost access point). Allows easy WiFi configuration in the console. Gzip support (doesn't make such a big difference in loading times, but it saves space in flash tho). Support for 4.05 and 4.55 (4.05 won't be updated tho.. i moved on to 4.55) FTP FTP server listening on port 21 (user "ps4xploit", password "ps4xploit") Filezilla settings for the site manager. - In general tab: port 21, protocol FTP, and encryption, only use plain FTP (insecure) - In transfer settings tab: passive mode, and limit number of simulataneous conenctions to 1 You can also use AndFTP for Android devices, it works great. Don't forget to connect to the ESP8266XploitHost AP before you can use the FTP, as it will be in a different network! Tools menu I included a small tools menu to be used from a PC/smartphone web browser. You need to connect to the ESP8266XploitHost AP, then browse to “” and you will see this: Upload file Use it to upload single files, like FW updates (for the ESP8266) or binary payloads to be used with the payload sender. You can use FTP too tho, however i find it useful for myself, so i decided to include it. Send binary payload Use this tool to send payloads not available in .js format or not added to the ESP8266XploitHost. It will list all available bin files in the ESP8266 flash. Choose the file you want to send and the PS4 IP (this is tricky, if you conenct your PS4 and your smartphone at the same time). IPs are assigned in order, starting from, so if you connect the PS4 first, it will have that IP. You don't need to connect your smartphone to the ESP8266 at all unless you did it to upload the bnary payload, and kept it connected. If only the PS4 is connected, only that IP will be listed in the connected stations list. Direct boot HEN Set a HEN payload to boot directly without having to choose anything in the ESP8266XploitHost menu. Only HTML files with “hen” in their name will be listed. Reset direct boot settings Delete Direct boot HEN settings. It will ask for confirmation. Set custom exploit menu Sets a custom exploit to be launched from the “Custom” placeholder in main hostmenu (the skull icon). You need to upload all needed files first (HTML + JS), and make sure references to external JS files in the HTML are correct. Format SPIFFS Formats the data partition. It will ask for confirmation. You will lose everything and will need to reupload the files using the FTP. You will need to use it also if the flash gets corrupted somehow (it happened! You wil know it cause it won't load web pages and it you use FTP you will notice missing or duplicates files... still a mistery how that happened. Maybe a bug in my code while adding new features in earlier development stages?). Device info Shows several parameters about your ESP8266 device. If you have issues and not a NodeMCU board, contact me with a picture or link to your exact board and a screenshot of this information. How to use it You can plug it to any of the PS4 USB ports. LED (on nodeMCU only probably) will remain lit until a station (the PS4, cellphone, PC or whatever you want to use as a client for this) is conencted to the access point. After that, it will blink only on file transfers. I don't have any other board, so i can't check where the built-inLED is on those. Consider donating if you want support for other boards. In the PS4 network settings, use WiFi, easy settings. Wait for the available network list, and choose “ESP8266XploitHost”, enter “ps4xploit” (without the quotes) when prompted for a password. Test connection, and you are done. Yes, it will pass the network test, and save the new settings. After that, open the user guide, and have fun. You can also use it from the PS4 web browser. Just open Known issues Some games do not work properly. No issues have been reported. Non working games were due to a problem with the PS4 browser possibily caching older versions of the gzipped files being sent. Browsing to with the PS4 browser and deleting cookies and site data, solves that. This should solve the issue for those who tried my previous releases. This will happen with every other host around, only some people don't give a shit about testing before releasing. If you still have a non working game after deleting site data from the browser, you can also try to send the binary payload (i included xvortex HEN bin file for 4.55) from the payload sender tool after loading Specter in the host menu in the PS4. xvortex dumper doesn't show notifications While it is the last version and the exact same payload in bin and js format, it won't show notifications when launched from the web menu. It will work as expected using the binary payload sender (i also included latest version if the bin file, so it will show up in the payloads list in the binary palyload sender tool). Customization / Templates If you distribute my image with your own template give the proper credit. Templates are nothing without the ESP8266 code that handles your files. Not many hints here, as i suppose if you are into HTML templates, you know what you are doing and not simply copying and pasting code from others. With FTP access is very easy to upload your own UI to the host. Some rules to make it fast: File system doesn't support folders, keep your external references to files in the root folder. Max file name lenght is 32 chars. Minimize references to external resources (CSS, JS, images). Embed them all in index.html when possible. Reduce image size. SVG are the best for this, but converting a JPG to SVG is stupid. Think about that! Nonsense! Use inline images for the fastest loading times! Main page must be index.html or it won't work. When listing FTP content, everything starting with “455_” and “405_” are exploits files. Do not delete them unless you plan to upload your own, and keep the references correct in the index.html file. After you are done with the template, gzip all your files. They will work in their original format, but if you want to minimize transfer times, use gzip. The ESP8266 will set correct headers for each file. You can't customize the tools menu. It's generated by the ESP8266. Ideally, you should only distribute your template files, and not the full image. With FTP access anyone can now upload and replace those files without having to reflash a full image. If you make some cool and optimized template, let me know and will link to your files from this post. Credits Thanks to all the beta testers, exploits devs and the huge EP8266 community. Exploits and payloads included in the ESP8266XploitHost, comes untouched from the following devs repos: xvortex (https://github.com/xvortex) Stooged (https://github.com/stooged) Specter (https://github.com/Cryptogenic) m0rph3us1987 (Holy Grail) PS3Xploit Team (W, esc0rtd3w, bguerville, Habib) PegaSwitch Team ReSwitched Team Also big thanks to qwertyoruiopz and flatz for making this possible. If you want to use my ESP8266 image to distribute your own hosts, give proper credit. Modifying some HTML template is not creating a fully hosted exploits server. Your templates are not magically served to the clients. There is a lot of code and time you can't see, you only see a HTML template created in 10 minutes.

    The PS4 scene has been filled with awesomeness, well at least for those of you on firmware 4.05, sadly i am not on that firmware myself, so this will be the first F.A.Q that i write without owning a hacked version of the console i am writing about, i will attempt to help you in the best way i can: Q.) My PS4 is on a firmware below 4.05, how do i update to the correct firmware? A.) You will need to download the correct Firmware here You can check the MD5 of any 4.05 firmware you download, by downloading this software which does not require an install: http://www.winmd5.com/ Or use this online tool: http://onlinemd5.com/ The MD5 for firmware 4.05 is 203C76C97F7BE5B881DD0C77C8EDF385 Once you have the above firmware downloaded, rename it PS4UPDATE.PUP Grab a USB Thumb Drive, format it to Fat32, on the root of the drive, create a folder called PS4 and inside that folder create another folder called UPDATE, then put the firmware inside the UPDATE Folder, it should look like this Root>PS4>UPDATE>PS4UPDATE.PUP If you need more help with installing firmware 4.05, you can view a detailed explanation on @wololo's blog here: http://wololo.net/2017/12/28/update-ps4-firmware-4-05-firmware/ Q.) My PS4 is on a firmware below 4.55, how do i update to the correct firmware? A.) The same as above applies, but of course you will need the correct firmware, which you can find here MD5 = 9c85ce3a255719d56f2aa07f4be22f02 Once you have the above firmware downloaded, rename it PS4UPDATE.PUP Grab a USB Thumb Drive, format it to Fat32, on the root of the drive, create a folder called PS4 and inside that folder create another folder called UPDATE, then put the firmware inside the UPDATE Folder, it should look like this Root>PS4>UPDATE>PS4UPDATE.PUP Q.) My PS4 is on Firmware 4.05, how do i install the hack/jailbreak? A.) You will need to visit a site that host's the exploit, such as this one: https://www.consolehax.com/playground-4-05/ You will need to run this each time you boot your PS4, as it is not permanent. For some people using a site such as the one above will not work, so you will have to self host as in have the files on your home computer and run a server from there, you can view this tutorial by @Thibobo https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4140-how-to-run-the-ps4-405-kernel-exploit-for-the-first-time/ If you do not have a computer, you can use your Android phone, just download this APK: https://www.playstationscenefiles.com/resources/android-app-to-host-ps4-exploit-and-payload-4-05-hen.113/ If you have a Raspberry Pi, you can use this method: https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4305-released-pixploithost-by-c0d3m4st4-ps4/ Q.) My PS4 is on Firmware 4.55, how do i install the hack/jailbreak? A.) 4.55 online PlayGround https://www.consolehax.com/playground-4-55/ Q.) How do i run backups? A.) You will need to dump your game and build it as a PKG, you can find out how by visiting this tutorial by @ConsoleHax https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4279-tutorial-the-quickest-method-to-dump-your-ps4-game-and-build-pkg/ You can of course find PKG's in certain naughty places, but i am not going to help you with that, because piracy isn't great and also because i don't want to be responsible for Sony crying and getting butt hurt. Q.) Some games require firmware past 4.05, how will i know which games i cannot play if i stay on this firmware? A.) Check this link from Reddit which has the minimum firmware requirements for a game: https://www.reddit.com/r/ps4homebrew/comments/5hms2v/minimum_firmware_versions_for_new_games/ Q.) Apart from PS4 backups, is it possible to run any games by other PlayStation consoles? A.) At the moment it is only possible to run PS2 backups, not sure PS3 backups will ever happen, but PS1 backups will be possible at some stage. Q.) How do i run PS2 Backups? A.) You need to grab a PS2 game, turn it into an ISO, then turn it into a PKG, it is a lot easier than it sounds and you can find a detailed explanation here thanks to @Thibobo https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4271-how-to-build-your-own-ps2classic-pkgs-for-ps4/ You can also view a video tutorial here, thanks to @DarkElementPL https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4273-video-tutorial-how-to-create-fake-ps2-pkgs-for-ps4hen/ Q.) Do ALL PS2 games work? A.) There have only been a small amount tested, at the time of creating this thread 232 games have been tested and only 81 of those are fully playable, 34 have minor issues and 51 are official PS2 classics that you can download from the PS Store, to see the growing list of games, visit the PS4 Dev Wiki here: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps4/PS2_Classics_Emulator_Compatibility_List Q.) Is there any homebrew? A.) Unfortunately no there is not, developers are either too lazy, don't care about developing for PS4 or do not want to use the official PS4 SDK, some of this is understandable as the 4.05 exploit is limited to consoles on 4.05, the latest firmware is 5.05, so finding a console second hand on 4.05 at a reasonable price will be practically impossible and the chances of finding a brand new console on 4.05 is just as hard, but saying that, there is a small amount of PS2 homebrew that can be run on the PS4, which is just how homebrew started on the PS3. Q.) So what else can i do apart from playing "backed up" PS4 and PS2 games? A.) There are a few things that you can do which can add to the fun of using a hacked PS4, such as: Custom Themes Sony released a Theme Creator for the PS3, but they have not done the same with the PS4, which means you are stuck with the ones on the PS Store and some of them suck ass, luckily for those of you on firmware 4.05, you can create and install your own custom themes, which is made super easy thanks to glänheit: https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4278-released-ps4-theme-editor-v012-by-glanheit_st-ps4/ Debug Settings This is pretty self explanatory, you can enable some Debug Settings, @zapptheman has provided this awesome tutorial to help you: https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4156-tutorial-advanced-★debug-settings-for-ps4-on-405/ You can follow this guide if you are Italian: https://www.gamesandconsoles.org/forum/threads/tutorial-installare-debug-mode-su-ps4-con-fw-4-05-jb.2/ Install Linux This is probably the most exciting feature of having a hacked PS4, you can view this guide in order to install Linux on your PS4: https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4214-tutorial-team-fail0verflows-fedora-distro-on-firmware-405-via-markus95/ For live help, check this link: https://playstationhax.xyz/forums/topic/4253-live-playstation-scene-help-ps4-ps3-psvita-henkaku-ps3xploit-ps4hen/

    Version .


    DANiO has released Funtoo PS4 based on Gentoo, which he has built from the ground up: ATTENTION - THIS IS A W.I.P OR NOT FULLY TESTED - SO USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION Requirements: Requirements: - USB stick with 16GB or more 1. Download funtoo_ps4.img.bz2, 2. burn substeps: - if on windows use 7zip to uncompress, then use win32 disk imager to write image to USB stick, - if on linux use `bzcat funtoo_ps4.img.bz2 | dd status=progress of=/dev/sdX` - where X is USB stick, 3. Use kernel-linux payload for hackable fw, 4. Now you see penguins! 5. Type: `mount /dev/sdb2 /newroot` 6. And BOO(S)T by: `exec chroot /newroot /sbin/init` 7. Now you can login as root! NOTE: the "root" password is "toor", remember it! md5sum: 13f0e0e998f9b2f0b63bd4e706229f24

    Getting an unhandled page fault error on launching Radiata Stories after packaging and installing it. So that's a thing. Going to see what fiddly nonsense I have to do to get this to work. EDIT: OK so adding "--vu-hack-triace=1" gets the game running at least, now it's a game of what does what with every other possible setting to get the lag issues and graphic artifacting/phantoming to stop. The parts of the game that run well, look nice at least. If I get this running, I'll start on Star Ocean 3~ if I can somehow figure out what settings are needed to do multi disks, beyond just telling it there are two disks naming one disc01 and the other disc02 lol.

    OK that would be it then, since when I make the pkgs manually its making them for 4.05 min firmware. ANYWAYS~ I'm going to test this out officially right now, see how it runs with one of my ps4 games. Good old Radiata Stories~

    Ah! thank you for pointing that out, I had not noticed that it would let me right click the 'unity' image to do that. I'm fairly familiar with building the packages by hand, but as you progress with this I'm going to keep watch as I like Having a more streamlined meathod, especially since it's kinda a pain to make a new copy of all the ps2classic emulator files for each new project when doing it by hand. @tangotnt What game did you try using with it? It's good practice to give as much info as possible about what your doing when it isn't working for you. To my knowledge these packages should work both with 4.05 and 4.55 As the setup im using for my 4.55 PS4 is the same setup that was released when 4.05 was the only option.

    Tool looks pretty solid, but I would definitely give people a way to load their pic1 and icon0 pngs so they can tell the games that they load apart from a glance rather than needing to select each one in the list on their ps4 to see what it is. Just a little quality of life. From the looks of it, you seem to be adding a way to customize the emulator a bit as well, but what might I ask is the default settings of the emulator this is packaging? is it just the bare bones package that's been released before, just put into an autogen? If so, then we already know a handful of games that this pkg generator won't run with. Legaia 2 Duel Saga, doesn't boot without changing some settings, and neither does Musashi Samurai Legend. Also would be nice to add into this a way to load more than one ps2 image. As we have a handful of multi disk games that would benefit from doing so. Star Ocean 3 for example.

    Hello! :) Damn, i thought i was registered here already, but seems i wasn't... more a reader than a poster in non spanish forums i guess... not much spare time :( Thanks for posting it here tho :) Just a clarification. The linked tutorial is in Spanish only. There is an English manual included already In the download link with the same contents. Will include both in final 1.0 release, this beta 4 seems to be working well, so it is almost final. I will add a couple of things for next 1.0 final version tho. Feel free to report any bugs and submit your comments. Enjoy it! :)

    You may be wondering why i am creating a guide in 2017 for the PS3, it's an eleven year old console, who cares about it, the answer is plenty of people. In the PS3 scene there always has been a problem and that has been downgrading, as it has always involved opening your console and installing some sort of hardware downgrader, if you had been reading the forum yesterday, you would have noticed this thread by @BobbyBlunt , which means no more hardware downgrading, thanks to the awesome Team PS3Xploit from PSX-Place you can do it via software now, which is the very reason i am creating this thread, below is a modified and updated version of a FAQ i did on the shitty website i used to run. (Q) Why Would I Hack/Jailbreak My PS3 ? (A) Hacking your PS3, gives you so many new option’s, you will be able to use emulators, homebrew apps and game backups as well as being able to use Linux, after Sony removed the function in firmware 3.21. (Q) Which PS3 Consoles Can Be Hacked (A) Here is a list of hackable PS3's, thanks to @3absiso (Q) Which PS3 Consoles cannot be Jailbroken (A) 3K and 4K consoles(Some Slim and all Super Slim) - Basically any PS3 released after June 2011. (Q) What Firmwares cannot be hacked yet ? (A) Back in 2013 when i wrote this i stated that any firmware from 3.56 on wards is not hackable, that is and isn't the case now, you cannot directly install a CFW on a PS3 if it is on any firmware between 3.56 and 4.81, though thanks to @Thibobo one can now install Rebug 4.81 CFW on a PS3 with 4.82 OFW already installed, but more of that later. (Q) My console is not on firmware 3.55, do i need to downgrade. (A) Yes, you will need to update to firmware 4.82, then use Team PS3Xploits exploit, which utilises the PS3's web browser and lets you downgrade, then install a CFW, developers like @Joonie suggest hosting the files yourself, but you can use this website that is being shared by at least one of the team members of PS3Xploit: http://redthetrainer.com/ps3/ BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS, MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON OFFICIAL PS3 FIRMWARE 4.82 DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS WHILST YOU ARE ON CFW/MFW, YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PS3. USE ONLY ON PS3's THAT CAN ALREADY BE DOWNGRADED, DO NOT USE ON NON HACKABLES AS YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PS3. If you wan't to self host, you will need to grab the files from PSX-Place, this is the official source and is the safest place to get all your PS3Xploit related downloads, visit the link below to grab the files: Ps3Xploit - Now Install CFW from 4.82 OFW: NOR/NAND Software Flash Writer + NOR Dumper (Q) I am running my own server, is there a guide to help me?
